Quite Possibly the Worst TV Show Ever Made
22 July 2001 | by Mumblyjoe83See all my reviews

I only vaguely remember this series. As I can remember, it seemed to last only about 2 episodes, and I hope that was the case. This show sucked like a Hoover. I recall that it involved some young girl, played by Gaby Hoffman, and her dysfunctional family, including her fresh-out-of-prison older sister, played by Nikki Cox. The sister in this show is probably the least appealing character ever created for any form of media or entertainment in the entire history of the world. I absolutely abhorred this character when I saw this show, and it's pretty hard to make a fourth grader hate something so passionately. There was nothing redeeming about this show at all. The writing was lousy, the jokes were poorly timed (jokes were made about the late Telly Savalas just after he died), the acting was atrocious, and you consistently got the impression that the studio audience that accidently stumbled into the taping were being forced to laugh by threats of death. Let us all thank God that this barely lasted and most people will never remember it.
